Tonight was another special night in the Champions League and it was one that saw several records set.
The first relates to Pep Guardiola, who took charge of his 150th UEFA Champions League game tonight, becoming the fifth manager to reach the milestone in the competition.
The Man City boss celebrated the achievement with a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund which saw two wonder goals from John Stones and Erling Haaland.
